E.F.T. Tapping When Your Baby Is In An Incubator

EFT Tapping When Your Baby is in an Incubator

As a parent there can be few things that make you feel more helpless and useless than when your premature or sick baby is whisked off in an incubator! You have to stand back whilst your baby is put on a ventilator, wired up to noisy monitors,  poked, prodded and subjected to painful and invasive procedures.  Your entire being; your biology, your heart and soul are screaming out to love, nurture and protect this precious little scrap, yet you can do nothing!  As a new mother, every nerve, sinew and hormone is programmed to hold, love and nurture the new arrival,.  You know all the interventions, as painful as many of them are, could be life saving. So you have to stand back, let strangers take over and somehow keep a lid on your viscerally raw emotions and instincts, your baby’s life depends on those strangers and there is absolutely nothing you can do. 

Or is there? 

Back in 1992 when I faced this situation, there was nothing I could do. I didn’t know Emotional Freedom Technique or Reiki. I had no way of soothing myself far less helping my daughter.  A bit later we were allowed to put our hands in the incubator, find a tiny piece of flesh which didn’t have a monitor or cannula  on it and touch her but that didn’t compensate for not being able to pick her up, hold her or feed her. 

Back then, like millions of other parents, I used will-power and determination to get through the long days and nights and continue to function. Many medical staff complimented me on how well I coped. Of course I wasn’t really coping, I was simply repressing painful emotions which is never healthy and brings it’s own problems further down the line!

Emotional Freedom Technique is definitely number one on my list of things I wish I’d known back then!

How You Can Help Yourself and Your Baby With Surrogate E.F.T. Tapping

It’s wonderful to see Emotional Freedom Technique becoming more widely known and accepted. It is very quick and easy to learn and amazingly effective even in the hands of complete beginners. Not all teachers know, or will tell you, that E.F.T. can also be done surrogately. You can tap on behalf of someone else even when you are not with them.

As we are using loving intention and energy, time and distance don’t matter. You can tap for your baby no matter where you are!

I won’t speculate on how or why this works, there are many different theories and for the purposes of this article, all I care about is that it helps someone out there.

Firstly Soothe Your Self!

We often project our fears onto others. In such a traumatic situation as the birth of a premature or sick baby you have to soothe yourself first. We are no use to anyone else when we are in deep trauma and shock ourselves.  Your baby feels your emotions and energy so by soothing yourself you also help her.

Three Ways to Tap On Behalf of Your Baby

Tune in to your baby and tap for whatever you feel or can see is upsetting or traumatising them. The obvious ones are of course, pain, fear, isolation and any painful medical interventions.

1. Tap On Your Own Body As Yourself

Simply tap as you normally would, but rather than state you have the problem, use the baby’s name for your set up statement.  “Even though (baby’s name or my baby) has this problem (state problem) I deeply and completely love and accept (baby’s name).  Do the same with your reminder phrase.

2. Tap On Your Own Body As Your Baby

Similar to the method above but sometimes this helps you  tune into how your baby is feeling more accurately.  Bearing in mind how connected you are with your newborn it’s not surprising that you often feel exactly what they are feeling.  Set your intention that you are your baby, then tap around as though you are the baby. “Even though I have this problem” etc. Remember to disconnect and come back to yourself when you are done.

3. Using A Proxy Item To Represent Your Baby

This can be a really useful way to help you focus. Any teddy bear, doll or other toy will do. Simply intend the toy to represent your baby and tap around the points as normal.

The Question of Permission

As a parent you only have the highest and best intentions for your child, your heart and intent are pure and loving. In the higher realms we are all connected, we are all love, we are all one. If you feel the need to ask the baby’s higher self or soul for permission do so but I truly don’t think anything done from such love, care and compassion can ever cause harm.

Ease Cold & Flu Symptoms With E.F.T.

Ease Cold & Flu Symptoms With E.F.T.

using eft for a cold or flu

It’s that time of year again so I thought a short Emotional Freedom Technique session to help you ease cold symptoms might be useful.

The common cold often arises from the simple belief that there is such a thing as a “Cold Season”.  If we buy into this belief it’s pretty certain that we’ll develop a cold!  Feelings of overwhelm, being overworked, carrying too much responsibility, being under too much pressure, feeling scattered and not taking time to listen to your body and slow down also often result in us developing colds.

If you are feeling under the weather check to see if you are feeling any of these emotions. That will give you ideas for what to tap on.  But you can get started right now by following the suggestions below.

If you are not familiar with E.F.T.  Just follow the tapping points illustrated below.

EFT Tapping PointsStarting at the Side of Hand Point say your set up statement out loud if possible and tap gently on the Side of the Hand with two or three fingers of your other hand.

“Even though I have this cold, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”.  Repeat this three times then tap the Eyebrow Point gently around ten times saying “I have this cold”. Move to the Side Of Eye point and repeat, “I have this cold”.  Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.

Return to your Side of Hand Point and say “Even though I have this cold, I know it’s my body’s way of giving me a message, maybe it just wants to me to slow down and take some time out. Or maybe it wants me to look after myself a bit more. Maybe I’ve just been doing to much and need to rest, nurture and love myself more.  I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself and I am grateful to my body for giving me this message. Repeat this three times.

Move to the Eyebrow Point and tap gently around ten times saying “My body is giving me this message, I am grateful. I now choose to listen to my body and take good care of myself”.

Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.

Back to the Side of Hand Point and say, “Even though I have (state symptom), I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself and my body. I am now listening to my body’s messages”. Again, repeat this three times then tap round the points using the reminder phrase, “This symptom (whatever the symptom is, i.e. this blocked nose etc).

You can then do a round for each of your symptoms.

3 Key Emotional Reasons For for Broken, Sprained & Swollen Ankles

3 Key Emotional Reasons For for Broken, Sprained & Swollen Ankles

3 Key Emotional Reasons for Broken, Sprained & Swollen Ankles

Affirmations For Ankle Pain

 

A Spate of Ankle Injuries!

I have heard a few stories recently about injured ankles so thought I’d write a brief post about what is really going on with us when we hurt our ankles.  On the face of it you might say it’s just down to the wintry weather. I don’t believe that for a moment! There is always a deeper reason for everything that happens to us, or more precisely, experiences we create.

If you have hurt, broken or damaged your ankle, the first and most important emotional issue to look at is support!  Your ankles reflect the support we all depend on from people around us and more importantly our inner support system. This inner support system consists of the psychological and emotional beliefs that give our lives meaning and purpose.  It includes the emotional support of our loved ones or spiritual or religious convictions.  If any of that is taken away, doubted or questioned there is nothing left to hold us upright. This can happen when we are shocked, traumatised, betrayed or rejected and feel unable to stand alone.

Our ankles are essential in keeping us upright, therefore they may collapse when we can no longer stand it or when the weight is just too much to bear.

A Sprained or Twisted Ankle

Our ankles also allow us to be flexible. A sprained or twisted ankle, implies a lack of flexibility in the direction we are going. The strain is too much and causes the energy to buckle or twist, i.e. to go in all directions at once.

A Swollen Ankle

A swollen ankle indicates that you are holding emotional energy, frustration or resistance to letting go.

A Broken Ankle

A broken ankle indicates a very deep emotional conflict about the ground you are standing on. Perhaps you are resisting making a change in the direction of your life, questioning your beliefs or are afraid or unable to stand up for yourself. Ask yourself what does your broken ankle prevent you from doing and what does your broken ankle allow you do to?

What Your Body Wants To Hear Boost Your Immune System with EFT

Our immune systems are designed to recognise and eliminate viruses, bacteria and other foreign invaders. For the most part they do an amazing job!  However, our immune systems can become less effective when we are under pressure, feel like giving up, are pushing too hard, feel insecure, threatened or manipulated. If you are feeling under the weather, check to see if you are feeling any of those emotions. That will give you ideas for what to tap on. But you can start boosting your immune system right now by tapping on the following the suggestions.

If you are not familiar with E.F.T. Just follow the tapping points illustrated here.

EFT Tapping Points

 

(For more instructions about tapping  points, pop over to my article about using E.F.T. to ease cold and flu symptoms.)

If you have symptoms of illness, pain or discomfort, use those in your set up statement as you tap on your Side of Hand Point. For example, “Even though I have this cold, I deeply and completely love, accept and forgive myself”. Repeat this three times then tap the Eyebrow Point gently, around ten times, saying “I have this cold”. Move to the Side Of Eye point and repeat, “I have this cold”. Repeat this at all the tapping points finishing off with the Top of Your Head point.
